I was featured on The Nontraditional Pharmacist podcast (episode 829). As a student, this is a great network to find like-minded people and learn about careers for pharmacists. TNP specifically helped me network with other pharmacists who have nontraditional roles and this is something I am very interested in pursuing myself. PPN is great for all avenues of pharmacy and no matter what you want to pursue, PPN has it covered!

PBM Reform, notes from Pharmacy Times June 26th 2019 

PBMs have been the focus of increasing scrutiny as many blame their unregulated practices for contributing to increasing prescription drug costs. The perspective, which addresses several areas of concern and provides insight into PBM pricing practices, suggests that reform may lead to drug cost savings.

According to the authors, a 2018 independent audit examined the impact of Ohio Medicaid’s switch in 2011 from a fee-for-service model to a managed care model to administer its outpatient prescription drug benefits. To date, the Ohio audit is the first comprehensive review of PBM practices and incorporated 39 million drug transactions, the authors said.

Overall, the audit indicated that the switch to a managed care program, which uses PBMs, saved the Ohio Medicaid program $415 million annually. The savings were largely driven by the lower prescription claim prices billed to plans by PBMs, according to the report.

How will USP 800 Impact My Retail and LTC Pharmacy - PPN Episode 850

How will USP 800 Impact My Retail and LTC Pharmacy?

USP-800 was designed to address the proper handling of hazardous drugs (HDs) in a pharmacy setting. Its guidelines are plainly aimed at promoting patient and worker safety in and around non- sterile and sterile compounding. The first section clearly covers compounding in its purest form.

However, when you move into section two, you quickly realize the dispensing of pills, capsules, liquids and manufactured packaged items are also covered by USP-800 Different types of terms are being used to describe types of hazardous drugs, such as: antineoplastic, non-antineoplastic, reproductive risk only; dosage form, risk of exposure, packaging and manipulation. This may sound like a whole lot of mumbo jumbo, but it is the new language of hazardous drugs.

To CBD or Not to CBD: Evidence Based Podcast - PPN Episode 827

Podcast cover
Read more

Be Prepared for Patients to Ask About CBD

Cannabidiol (CBD) products are moving into some pharmacies and mainstream retailers...not just smoke shops, dispensaries, etc.

CBD and THC are cannabinoids found in two varieties of the cannabis plant...marijuana and hemp. CBD doesn't cause a "high" like THC.

Hemp with 0.3% THC or less is no longer a federally controlled substance and is a legal source of CBD...after last year's Farm Bill.

But cannabis STATE laws vary. For example, cannabis is fully legal in California...but all forms are illegal in Idaho.

FDA regulations add to the confusion. They say CBD can't be sold as a supplement...since it was first approved as an Rx drug (Epidiolex). But CBD is allowed in hemp-derived "cosmetics"...creams, lotions, etc.

This leaves a lot of murkiness with CBD...especially with orals, tinctures, foods, etc...and enforcement is spotty.

So far, the most conclusive evidence is with Epidiolex...a purified CBD solution approved for two rare and severe seizure disorders.

Emphasize that there's not good evidence yet to support popular CBD claims...such as relieving chronic pain, anxiety, or insomnia.

And the variety of CBD products leaves many unknowns about their safety, quality, dosing, etc.

In general, recommend avoiding CBD in pregnant or breastfeeding women...and lean away from it in patients taking multiple meds.

Educate that CBD may cause drowsiness, diarrhea, etc...and using it with CNS depressants (benzos, opioids, etc) may worsen sedation.

Be aware of many potential interactions. For example, CBD inhibits CYP2C8, 2C9, and 2C19...and might raise levels of meds such as amitriptyline, valproic acid, and warfarin. Or CBD levels might be increased by CYP3A4 inhibitors, such as clarithromycin.

Plus high CBD doses are linked to elevated liver function tests. Explain most urine drug tests check for THC...not CBD. But high CBD doses with trace amounts of THC...or impure products...could lead to a positive THC test.

If patients plan to try CBD, suggest checking the product for a "certificate of analysis" from an independent lab. This doesn't confirm safety or efficacy...but shows levels of CBD, THC, and contaminants.

Dive deeper with our chart, Comparison of Cannabinoids...and access our Natural Medicines for more on efficacy, safety, and interactions.

Anne Arvizu and Sotirios Stergiopoulos

V3 Podcast Episode 2: Can The Cure For Cancer Be Right Around The Corner?

Welcome back to the #V3Podcast.

This is The Vision, the Voice & the Value of Medical Affairs.

On today’s episode, we discuss Artificial Intelligence (AI), blockchain technology and the future of global Medical Affairs. Is biopharma lagging behind compared to other industries? And what’s the reason? Who is really pushing for change? And how can the C-Suite catch up and catch the wave before it’s too late?  

The number one medical affairs podcast tackles new ground in this episode as Biopharma global executive veteran, Dr. Anne Arvizu, interviews Medical Affairs influencer and frontrunner, Dr. Sotirios Stergiopoulos, President & CEO at A2A Pharmaceuticals. Dr. Stergiopoulos is an awarded physician executive and oncology thought leader. He’s also been recipient of the prestigious lifetime achievement award, by the American Cancer Society, for his long-standing dedication to fighting cancer. He serves on the Board of Governors for the Accreditation Council for Medical Affairs. Previously, at Ipsen he was Chief Medical Officer, SVP and Head of Global Medical Affairs. Sotirios has held numerous other leadership positions in the pharmaceutical industry with companies including Novartis, Bayer, and Celgene. Dr. Stergiopoulos holds a B.S. from Stony Brook University, an M.D. from Poznan University of Medical Sciences, and an M.B.E.E. from the Johns Hopkins University; and has trained at the National Institutes of Health, the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and Harvard University.

As the conversation starts, Dr. Stergiopoulos reveals his thoughts on the future of global medical affairs. Artificial intelligence can have significant value and be one of the greatest assets for the biotech industry. Plus, the team discusses how blockchain will drastically alter patient anonymity and privacy reports. Crypto machinery will protect the interest of our patients by keeping their data safe. Anne highlights how the medical affairs segment of the biotech industry is not using AI as much as other industries like entertainment, telecommunications, technology, and professional services. Dr. Stergiopoulos thinks the medical sector is pressure tested – they are first waiting to see if AI is a fad or something that is going to be ubiquitous in society.

With such a daunting task ahead, Anne theorizes asks how the biotech industry might become knowledgeable enough in the technology to utilize it daily. Dr. Stergiopoulos insists that ‘middle management’ and the technologically savvy people, are the new content experts. They're the ones that keep pushing corporate heads to find and adopt new and relevant technologies. Many people don't even realize they are already using AI, and they don't even know how the technologies are rapidly evolving. One foundation is even giving out generous rewards to teams who can solve problems using AI. XPRIZE gives out millions of dollars to groups who can tackle big problem, i.e., find ways to ensure society has an indefinite supply of clean water. Then, Anne and Sotirios discuss what roles medical affairs need to focus on moving forward. Dr. Stergiopoulos reveals the top three are medical affairs services (such as medical information and medical communications), content expertise, and ensuring their MSLs are topnotch. 

Later, Dr. Stergiopoulos reveals his feelings on patient-centricity. Currently those words are being used as a disturbing catchphrase. However, he believes we are moving in the right direction now. Dr. Stergiopoulos thinks we have some excellent patient-centricity officers out there, but both agree there is a need for more. The goal of the officer is to make sure that number one, most importantly, the company realizes that everything they do is all about the patients. In his previous role, the Chief Patient Centricity Officer reported directly to him, to advocate for the patient, with the number one goal to educate everybody within the company and to ensure people understand that the patient's voice needs to be heard.

This power hour illuminates applications in AI as used in medical affairs and brings our minds up to the highest goal: seeing the potential cure for cancers in our lifetime via genetic therapies and other modalities. Keep ears perked up to hear Dr. Stergiopoulos reveal the new technologies we need to be on and what keeps his heart in the game.

Medication Nonadherence does NOT cost $300 Billion but Medication Non-Optimization Costs More - PPN Episode 887

MEDICATION ADHERENCE IS NOT A $300 BILLION PROBLEM

(Change my Mind)

Medication adherence holds a soft spot for me, likely due to my professional background as a pharmacist. I cannot tell you how often medication adherence comes up daily when addressing patient care. Even in the home healthcare setting, we have multiple nurses that are dedicated to visiting and administering medications to patients (usually those with a psych history or SUD or related comorbidities that impede medication use). I love the idea of technology aiding in medication adherence, and if you follow my work, you know that I have been reviewing apps and devices for almost a decade now. Nonetheless, I cannot but help notice a trend that is, I believe, really cutting out pharmacists from the medication "adherence" disruption space.

Heres the problem: Medication adherence is not a $300 Billion problem, and that may shock you. After all, almost every company website I visit discusses how they will transform healthcare with their solution/product by focusing on their intervention will reduce the cost of adherence in the US. And I cannot help but think this narrative is killing the pharmacy profession because it opens up a very different tale to the actual problem that is favorable to only a few people.
